This is a great fun kit that is sure to grab the interest of your students. When thrown the Frisbee will produce a visual display created by the LEDs on the PCB. At the same time the board can also be programmed so that is will produce a sound or play a tune (requires the addition of Piezo element buzzer, not included). When the Frisbee stops spinning the LEDs will turn off and the sound or tune will stop. The Frisbee can be made by vacuum forming.
This kit is a programming based project and as such will require programming.

How do I program the PICKAXE chip? What platform and in which language? I'm in Australia, if that makes a difference... Thanks

We have a resource which should help to show how to program the PICAXE chip, https://www.kitronik.co.uk/blog/use-picaxe/ there is also a link to show where you can download the PICAXE software. It shouldn’t matter that you’re in Australia
